The regulatory process for both development and building permits as well as business licences is governed by UBC Policy UP12: Land Use, Permitting and Sustainability. This Policy enables UBC to establish Land Use Rules which respect development, sustainability, construction, lease agreements, security, use, occupancy, density, landscaping, noise, nuisance, signage, wayfinding, road function and standards, fees, charges, permits, and licenses, including business licenses.
The following are UBC’s Land Use Rules and where each applies:
